CSWEP Paper Sessions for ASSA 2023

CSWEP Call for Abstracts
Sessions at 2023 AEA Meeting: January 6-8, 2023 (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday)
New Orleans, LA – Hilton Riverside New Orleans

Deadline: March 4, 2022
CSWEP invites abstract submissions for paper presentations at seven CSWEP-sponsored sessions at the 2023 ASSA/AEA Meeting in New Orleans. At least two sessions will focus on Gender-related topics. We are particularly interested in papers on gender in the economics profession and gender disparities in the impacts of COVID-19. We are also planning sessions focused on Education Economics and the Economic Uses and Applications of Big Data. Within these sessions, we may devote a session to studies of the impacts of social safety net programs. The decision to sponsor particular sessions will depend on the number and quality of submissions received. 

CSWEP's primary intention in organizing these sessions is to create an opportunity for junior women to present papers at the meetings; and to provide an opportunity to meet with and receive feedback from leading economists in their field. For this reason, the presenting author of each paper should be a junior woman. The term junior woman usually refers to anyone identifying as a woman or nonbinary who is untenured, or who has received a PhD less than seven years ago; but could also refer to a woman who has not yet presented papers widely. There are no restrictions on the gender or seniority of coauthors. There are two exceptions to the requirement that the presenting author be a junior woman – the gender-related sessions are open to all junior economists, and potential sessions on gender in the economics profession are open to all.
The organizers of the AEA sessions will select a subset of the presented papers for publication in the 2023 AEA Papers & Proceedings. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit their paper for publication consideration in December.
In addition to individual paper submissions, complete session proposals may be submitted, but the papers in the session proposal will be considered individually. Duplication of paper presentation at multiple AEA Sessions is not permitted, therefore authors will be expected to notify CSWEP immediately and withdraw their abstract if their paper is accepted for a non-CSWEP session at the 2023 AEA Meeting. Similarly, authors whose paper is accepted to a 2023 CSWEP session will be expected to withdraw it from consideration by any other organization at the same meetings.
The deadline for submission is: March 4, 2022.
To have research considered for the CSWEP-sponsored sessions at the 2023 AEA Meeting, the Correspondence Author must complete an online submission form and upload an abstract. We are no longer taking abstract submissions at this time. 

The application form will ask for the following information:

  1. Indication of submission to one of the sessions:
    • Gender-related Topics
    • Economics of Gender in the Economics Profession
    • Education Economics
    • Economic Uses and Applications of Big Data
    *Note that all applications submitted to the "Economics of Gender in the Economics Profession" will automatically be considered for the Gender-related Topics as well.
  2. Indication of a single abstract submission or a complete session submission.
  3. The Name, Title, Affiliation, Mailing Address and Email for the correspondence author or session organizer.
  4. Name (s), Title(s), Affiliation(s) and Email address(es) for any coauthor(s) or for each corresponding author in a complete session submission.


The abstract should be a PDF document, not exceeding two pages in length, double-spaced, with a maximum of 650 words. Name  of the file: “Abstract_Corresponding Author Last Name-First Name.” 
The abstract should contain details on motivation, contribution, methodology and data (if applicable); and be clearly identified with the author(s) name(s). Completed papers may be sent but may not substitute for an abstract of the appropriate length. Any other questions can be addressed to Rebekah Loftis, Committee Coordinator, at info@cswep.org.
